Bam bounces out of school full of enthusiasm and excitement (yes, even more than usual!). The reason for his enthusiasm? He’s going to enter the school talent contest. ‘I need you to print off some jokes from the internet, I’m going to perform a comedy act’ Eek, it’s really hard to make people laugh, aContinue reading “Bam’s got talent!”

Mother’s bond with her children
I don’t think there’s anything stonger than the bond between a mother and her children. I know my boys inside out. I know what they like to do, what they like to eat and what makes them happy and sad (well most of the time anyway!) I know it won’t always be this way andContinue reading “Mother’s bond with her children”
‘Don’t worry you’re not last!’
A few years ago I ran my first ever half marathon. I ran with a friend for a charity and I have to say it really was one of the toughest 2.5 hours of my life. Ok, ok, so maybe not as tough as childbirth, particularly boy number one, but even so it was a toughContinue reading “‘Don’t worry you’re not last!’”
I’m no circus performer but any parent will be an expert at juggling. Raising kids, running a house, working, a social life and ‘me’ time. Oh and then there’s the washing, this is actually a part time job in itself – where on earth does it all come from?! Unfortunately planning a social life andContinue reading “Juggling act”

On the 2nd week of December my family gave to me…A minor panic as I realised the ChristmasContinue reading “Christmas: from a Mum’s perspective”
Life in the fast lane…
I’ve been reflecting recently on the family life that Mops, my youngest boy, is part of. Life is very chaotic, loud and active. For him life has always been like that so I wonder if he actually realises his life might be ever so slightly different to his friends in the classroom? He knows all aboutContinue reading “Life in the fast lane…”
Christmas comes early!
Christmas causes excitement in every house. In our house, it means Bam’s ADHD is heightened. He has even more energy and is extra, extra bouncy! So I know I need to be prepared. Do I really need to prepare for it in October though? Sadly, it would appear that I do! Following a family strollContinue reading “Christmas comes early!”
A night on a tiny island!
I’m not really a camper. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love being outdoors but I like to go home to my bed in the evening. I have only been camping once as a girl guide. This experience ended with me waking up in the morning to find myself outside the tent in the middleContinue reading “A night on a tiny island!”
Last week I was fortunate enough to spend a week on holiday with my boys and enjoyed some proper family time. Away from the laptop, household chores and the general routine of life. Whilst on holiday I was really struck by the boundless amount of energy Bam has. I know he has always had lotsContinue reading “Super powers…”
